Naw, but the actual smoke was black as coal, so maybe they found out he was the anti-christ Tongue

"Hi, can I help you find anything?"

Then you smile courteously and say "No thanks, I'm just browsing."

"Hi, are you finding everything ok?

"Yeah, thanks," even though you haven't actually looked at anything yet.

"Ok, just let us know if you need anything"

You shoot a quick glance in her direction, nodding politely with a forced smile. You make your way stealthily toward the back of the store, skimming the outer wall to avoid detection from the guy patrolling the central customer service kiosk.

You've made it to the back of the store; you're in the clear! "Here we go, wireless headphones," you mumble in an inaudible whisper, suddenly becoming aware of just how damn quiet it is in here. Also, you're the only customer in the store. Also... four employees are staring directly at you...

...

"NEED HELP FI-- sorry, haha, didn't mean to make you jump. Oh, hey, I noticed you're looking at headphones. Let me talk at great length about how awesome this $300 pair is!
blahblahblahblahblah
blahblahblah"

Oh I hate that!! Too many people in a store trying to help. Yeah, I see you there, if I have questions, I'll ask! That and pushy salesmen. Both make me want to leave and not buy anything out of spite.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Hell that's why I can't watch TV shows that aren't pre-DVR-recorded, so I can FF through the commercials! Undecided
It's the NFL that ruined me on them, too! Undecided They fit a commercial into every possible split second available! I literally go out of my way to avoid most of those products!
